Come and join in the fun as Aylesbury town centre plays host to a fantastic free kids event on every Thursday of the school holidays!
Now in their sixth year, #AylesburyThursdays are popular with kids and parents alike, as they provide exciting and interesting activities to keep the kids entertained, and the whole family can enjoy the fantastic range of cafes and restaurants in Aylesbury – plus of course the two shopping centres and a range of independent shops.
#AylesburyThursdays aim to bring kids a range of activities that they wouldn’t normally get the chance to do for free – from a mini zoo to trying a six-lane Scalextric; from a kid-sized Last One Standing to free magic shows, and even the opportunity to leap from a platform seven metres off the ground onto a giant stunt bag!
Aylesbury town centre manager, Diana Fawcett, said: “The Aylesbury Town Centre Partnership is dedicated to improving Aylesbury town centre and our range of Thursday events have grown in popularity. The events add vibrancy to our beautiful town whilst encouraging more visitors for the local businesses to benefit from.”
This summer’s events, taking place in Market Square or nearby Kingsbury, are:
Madcap Thursday - 23 July (11am to 3pm)
Take your place on the bouncy disc and take turns to jump over the revolving inflatable pole – can you out-jump your opponents and be the last one standing? Still feeling competitive? Why not find out who can leap up and retrieve the highest items in the Energy Zone? Free wizard castle and toddler soft play area too, plus mega slide for just £2 and go-karting for just £3.
Magical Thursday - 30 July (11am to 3pm)
Zany magical fun from Colonel Custard as he returns with his ever-popular, award winning magic shows. Catch free performances at 11.30am, 12.30pm, 1.30pm and 2.30pm, or enjoy balloon modelling between shows. Face painting is also available for just £2.50.
Zoomungous Thursday - 6 August (11am to 3pm)
Weird, wonderful, fluffy, scaly, shy, curious, little and large - which will be your favourite animal at the free mini zoo? With free crafts, free toddler soft play area and the chance to try your go-karting skills for just £3, this promises to be a fun-packed day out.
Thrill-seeker Thursday - 13 August (11am to 3pm)
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to leap onto our giant stunt bag from seven metres above the ground, then see if you have the stealth to weave through the security laser field in The Vault and retrieve the booty.

Face painting from £2.50 and go-karting for £3 also available.
Speedway Thursday - 20 August (11am to 3pm)
